This is a really nice sport weight/ DK weight yarn from the Fibre Company.
Here is how the Fibre Company describes Acadia:
Acadia is an absolutely beautiful, completely original and custom designed 2-ply yarn with a rustic look and soft hand. A subtle tweed effect created by the silk noil is combined with a heathered base and then overdyed in the duotones we are known for, creating incredible depth of color.
The yarn is made up of 60% merino wool, 20% baby alpaca + 20% silk and has 145 yds/50 gram skein. Can't you just imagine how it feels?
The usual gauge listed on the skein is for 21-23 sts = 4 inches on US 5-6, so plan from that.
This colorway offered on this page is named Granite and is a wonderful neutral, a medium slate grey with suggestions of a sandy brown and all cast with a slightly bluish overtone -- this truly reflects the stone it is named for.
This will make for some delicious knitting.
